and so it is
You'd think, with my boss in the UK, that I'd have had a lazy week but I have been busy as hell.
My stats. Plummeting. What can you do?
I was just explaining to someone that I haven't posted in days.
sat across from me a few nights ago and I was so nervous.
She really looks like she's going to throw up, doesn't she?
She didn't. I think it was her usual facial expression.
Let's change the subject.
As you can clearly see in this photo
I have new eyeglasses.
They were, of course, very expensive (although they are not the absolutely exquisite ones I tried on which were $1000) and have beautiful tiny details. It will feel good to see well again (like a clean windshield, you know). They are out for lenses now. I made Youngest The Design Student go shopping for them with me and got them at Morgenthal Frederics which has a wonky website.
Then we took Youngest's laptop to the genius who noted well that the screen of the four month-old Mac had some strange white spots on it. Happily, we had Apple Care on it.
Later in the week I took my laptop back in as my battery has been wonky. Covered.
I was invited to attend a sweet baby shower for one of my favorite co-workers.
It'll be the second office-baby in two months.
I have the enviable position of shopping for luxurious baby gifts!
This little project was the last straw for my old eyeglasses.
45 pages of teeny font which could not be made any larger.
It's a list of 5632 contacts and I'm hoping to thin it.
After a week I'm down to 4335.
We received some beautifully flavored olive oils for Christmas and this is one of my favorite dinners...some fresh mozzarella, some salad, some oil and bread. With wine.
I never found out who left this for me...
it was very very good (and I'm not a sweets person).
It proved that I'll eat pretty much anything left on my desk.
Middle's thoughts on his paper present from Christmas.
We're all well! Youngest's wrist had a follow-up xray and is fine (this is amazing), Oldest is beginning to be out and about again and K and I are both over our flu.
As the cities and states around us declare health emergencies I am stunned that Youngest seems to have had both varieties of flu this year.
Lesson learned: get the shot early.
I hope you're all well.
I HATE smal print. Used to assume that by the time it really got to be a problem, we Boomers would have taken over the world sufficiently that it would be banned forever. That doesn't seem to be happening. Could you throw that contract list on the copier and enlarge it? It looks like pure torture to me.
I am so glad to hear that you are all feeling better! It's been a tough winter, that's for sure.
Luckly, because it was soooo cold last night, I baked a cheese cake!
Still wish I had that salad though...
Funny we only eat that type of salad dish in the summer here ...
